It's not nice to fool Mother Nature!

For those who are either too young to remember or not American the title comes from an old Chiffon Margarine commercial (click to watch it). I always got a big kick out of it when I was a kid and would run around playing Mother Nature and saying that catch-phrase followed by a big thundering sound. I'm sure it got on my mother's nerves.

Have you seen Dr. Laura lately? Oh my God, Becky, look at her face, it is so scary. She looks like one of those plastic surgery addicts... It's gross. Look. *shake that healthy butt* (sorry, Sir Mixalot just popped into my mind)

I was on the very verge of receiving one of those life-altering revelations when I got distracted by Dr. Laura on FoxNews. OMG! She looks like a freakin' talkin' skeleton. Lady. Pu-lease. You've got enough Botox in your face to paralyze an army. Ick. I think she's a hypocrit. I always have. She might give some good advice, but a lot of it is garbage. But to be fair, I haven't read any of her books or listened to her much because it doesn't take long for her to bother me, no matter what she looks like. But now, man, she is a freakin' freakshow. Sorry, if I'm being too mean, but she needs to fire and/or sue whoever told her she would look good with a gallon of botox in her face.

Damn that woman and her plastic surgeon/dermatologist for causing me such distress that I lost my brilliant thought. ;-)

And Barbara Walters too. She's got that perpetually surprised look (with overly pulled open eyes and raised eyebrows) and the motionless upper mouth of botox. Who told her she looks better like that? She needs to fire/sue them too.

It's not nice to fool Mother Nature! *thunder*

I think I remember that commercial. I remember hearing the title anyway. I don't like the botox thing either and someone I was discussing it with pointed out, these people don't really know the long-term effects. What if their faces just rot off in fifteen or twenty years? Granted some people are so old that won't matter, but there are younger and younger folks getting it. I'll stick with my face moisturizers thank you very much.

OK, I can't speak personally about the book because I have not read it. However, my wife read "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands" and followed some/all? of the recommendations. She said the difference in me was striking. I didn't think I was that bad...who knew? lol

kat, you are very wise! :-)

dh, so your wife has you trained like a puppy? ;-) I hope that you have also read some how-to book(s) on how to properly maintain a wife. lol But I don't need no stinkin' how-to books! ;-)

Maybe they should sue their own vanity and stupidity?

Thank you so much! The chiffon song has been running through my head lately, so I googled it and found your blog.
